Description 

The Wastelands and The Arctic Circle lie scattered across the base of Queen Mountain and although separated by distance and rugged terrain both are easily visited in a day if motivated.

The rock here here varies considerably from light-colored and grainy at the The Arctic Circle to smooth and dark at The Wastelands which gives a taste of what the The Underground is all about.

Notable problems here include the Bounty Hunter Arete (V0+), The Mullet (V1), Intrusion Face (V1), The Reacharound (V1 R), It's Da Oooze (V1+), Survivalist (V2), Tinkerbell's Anus (V2), Particle Accelerator (V3), Moral Wasteland (V3), Whips, Chains and Lox (V3), Side Dish (V4), Poker in the Front (V4), Habanero (V4) and Anti-Matter (V5 R).

SDS at the blunt arete with a left hand edge and right hand pinch and power up to a tricky highstep and then finish up fun face past horizontal slashes. Can be done from a standing start at V0-.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
